Show-Me-Careers is a new statewide initiative designed to increase inclusive employment opportunities for youth and young adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities who are transitioning to employment from secondary or post-secondary educational settings.

Show-Me-Careers project is seeking proposals (RFP) from community partnerships interested in increasing access to early work experiences and inclusive employment for youth and young adults (ages 16-30) with intellectual/developmental disabilities.  During September, Show-Me-Careers will host Pre-Application Meetings in cities around Missouri.  Go to http://showmecareers.org/ to find a location near you, the RFP, and to RSVP.

The above website also contains a link to the FAQ page with questions received to date about the application process.  We hope this will clarify any issues you may have while assembling your application.  Please do not hesitate to email our project director, Oliver Burnette at burnetteo@umkc.edu if you have additional questions.  Mr. Burnette will also be answering questions at the Pre-Application meetings.
